ABOUT THE PROJECT
Vivino is the world’s largest online wine marketplace with the most downloaded wine app. With a simple label scan, users get instant access to a community-powered database, where they can research, rate, review, and buy wine.
The company was started over a decade ago by two visionaries, Heini Zachariassen and Theis Søndergaard, as a place for wine enthusiasts to bond over their love for good wine. Something created by ordinary people and for ordinary people soon revolutionized the wine market across the world.
Vivino app has now over 45 million users worldwide and is available in 15 different languages. It offers an exquisite choice of over 12 million wines from every winery on the face of the Earth.
Case Study: Cloud Engineering Powers Business
Symphony Solutions helped Vivino expand its database and user interest to become the largest wine community in the world.
The team created an architecture and infrastructure that leverages Cloud technologies to accommodate the continuously growing database of wines and users, as well as manage high load periods like Christmas and Valentine’s day.
Vivino team continues to deliver high-quality code, testing and fine-tuning the app, so that Vivino users get to enjoy an enhanced digital experience.

THE GROWTH OF A PARTNERSHIP
Symphony Solutions and Vivino recently celebrated the 8th anniversary of their business partnership.
In 2013, a small Danish start-up with no technical expertise brought Symphony Solutions on board to turn an idea into an up-and-coming product. Today, Vivino is increasing its market share each year, as more and more avid smartphone users grow into the wine-drinking age.
So, what is yet to come for the world’s greatest wine app?
Vivino team is constantly working on delivering new features and functionalities, and expanding localization to new markets and bringing the digital marketplace to more countries, as the userbase grows.
